Police are dealing with alleged problems of anti social behaviour by a group of young people on a Skegness estate.

It follows reports that youths were trespassing in fields on Warf Lane and throwing corn and eggs at homes and cars on The Meadows estate.

The incidents have caused alarm to a number of residents.

Investigating officer PCSO David Bunker said: “Police are conducting enquiries and identified offenders will be entered into the anti social behaviour referral process. This process is progressive, and takes a multi agency approach, starting with warning letters served to offenders in the presence of their parents, in an effort to educate offenders and enable them to moderate their behaviour.

“Should offenders continue to act in an anti social manner, the process escalates to an Acceptable Behaviour Contract (ABC) and can ultimately lead to an application to the courts for an Anti Social Behaviour Order (ASBO).”

Officers have been in the area today (Wednesday) with the mobile police station, engaging the community, conducting enquiries and offering reassurance.

Anyone with information should call PCSO Michelle Collins on 101 quoting incident number 337 of August 26 or email
